Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
This is New Order's debut in name only, with the ghost of Ian Curtis still hanging heavily over his grieving Joy Division bandmates. It would take them one more step, to the brilliant Power, Corruption and Lies, to really assert their own power. Movement, then, is the sound of guitarist Bernard Sumner, percussionist Stephen Morris, and innovative bassist Peter Hook building a bridge from JD's Sturm und Drang drone to New Order's considerably brighter dance pop. It's an interesting bridge to cross though, peppered with dark highlights like the almost poppy "Dreams Never End," the blip-blooping electro chaos of the Pere Ubu-influenced "ICB," and "The Him," with its rhythmic echoes of JD's "Atrocity Exhibition." --Michael Ruby

CD Reviews

Pre-New Order, and Post-Joy Division
S. Kosloske | Milwaukee, WI USA | 11/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have to give this one 5 stars since I'm both a JD and a NO fan. And this album really seems to be the "between" point that is missing if you only heard "Love Will Tear Us Apart Again" and "Blue Monday". Of course, you really have to like both incarnations of the band to like this CD, but for those few, this is one to own.
